Cloghan Castle’s Banquet Hall is what drew the couple to the castle and they made the most of the unique setting. “I loved the medieval feel of the stone interiors,” says Kristen. “I wanted the room fully lit by ambient light sources for a romantic vibe, so we filled the place with string lights and tons of candles. We honestly did not expect a huge party atmosphere with only 30-ish people, but my hubby had the idea of hiring an Irish pub-style band and once they got started, things went wild!”

REAL-LIFE WEDDINGS

Kristen has some wise words of advice for other couples considering a destination wedding. “Do what you can leading up to the [wedding]…but the minute you board that plane, let it all go. That is the beauty of a destination wedding. You get to be on vacation. Don’t ruin a moment of your trip fretting over minute details that are out of your hands.”
